I wish I could write as eloquently as Michael Broadbent, the British wine critic. Take his latest contribution to Decanter magazine in the July issue where he writes about a 1985 Lafite tasted at a recent dinner. His style is simply inimitable:
“Initially unassuming but beautifully balanced, surprisingly deep, though not too New World deep, its bouquet unfurled. On the palate too, like the Dance of the Seven Veils, layers of flavour were revealed, finally reaching perfection. Modestly titillating but not erotic.”
I just love his regular column in Decanter. It's usually the first piece that I read as soon as I receive the magazine and now I can't wait for the August issue. By the way, I also wished I was there when he tasted that 1985 Lafitte.
